Emeril's Bro-in-Law -- The Shiitake Hits the Fan

9/24/2008 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Looks like Emeril Lagasse and his brother-in-law are into different types of mushrooms, and this is an awesome story.

Kent Lovelace just got the BAM! for illegal possession of mushrooms in Mississippi. The cops tell us he got pulled over on Sunday because his car was swerving. He allegedly claimed diabetes made him weave (Emeril not feeding him enough?), but a search of the car turned up shrooms and traces of MJ.

Just to kick up the humiliation a notch -- we're told it was Emeril's wife (Kent's sister) who had to shell out for his $5K bond.
